Putting some feelers out there.

This is Snickers. I acquired him in February when my old trainer moved and wasn’t able to afford his care. He’s a great little guy with a ton of potential, but I don’t feel like I’m giving him the best opportunity to be the horse he is meant to be. He was bred and started for cutting, but I have absolutely no way of getting cows to let him do what he loves. There are no working ranches or trainers with cows in my city. So, with a little bit of sadness but a whole lot of pride, I have made the decision to open the possibility of selling him to a person (or family) that can fully let him exceed his potential.

He has done plenty of longing over crossrails, I have trotted him around a barrel a few times (not in a pattern yet), and he is VERY fast. (I know it sounds typical to say he’s very fast, but I’ll upload a video of him during turnout within the next day or two to see yourself.) I would consider him to be green, but only for the fact that I have been riding other horses more than him.(My definition of green for him: I ride him once a week, and need to turnout or longe him before I ride.) Can be ridden in an English Snaffle or Western Shank, and tight rein or loose rein.

AQHA Reg. Name: Playboy Cat NIC
Age: 7 years old
Height: Unsticked, but I am guessing 14.1 or 14.2

(Pictures: longing over jumps, undersaddle, 11 and 8 year old sisters grooming him, and bath time)

Better pictures are soon to come. I was only able to be at the barn for 15 minutes this morning.

Is there anyone looking for horse boarding/training in Las Vegas? :)

The place I am boarding and training at is recently going through new ownership/management and we (by we I mean the owner/head trainer, assistant trainer, and groom aka myself) are looking for new boarders and students!

Prices are relatively cheap compared to other facilities in the Las Vegas area, and the location is nicely located in the suburbs between Summerlin and Northwest. Barn stalls, covered stalls attached to the main barn, and corral stalls next to the arena are available. Lesson/training packages, groom services, and stud services are available, as well.

The owner has over 15 years of experience in the Arabian show circuit, and has plethora of experience in all disciplines.

A website is still in the making, but if you or anyone you know is looking for a place, don’t hesitate to get in touch! If you are interested, please contact me through my inbox on this account, my inbox on my other account (looktheresme.tumblr.com) or email me at looktheresme@gmail.com, and I can give you the phone number to the owner that way you can get a more personally detailed view and even tour the facility. :)

Day 7:

This week has been so great with Snickers. A new farrier came out today for him and he stepped into the arena like a brand new horse. (It wasn’t like his feet were horrible, they were just uneven and it caused a bit of swelling after exercise.) Anyways, I lunged him for a few minutes, and then added a little cross rail in the circle and he is such an awesome jumper.

He was so mellow throughout the day. A few special needs kids from the YMCA came to the barn for a little field trip and I was in charge of it. I walked them around the barn, named all the horses, and let the kids pet the horses through the hay gates. However, I saw an amazing potential to brighten the kids’ (and also myself’s) day. I decided to put Snickers in the cross ties and let the kids groom him. He did great! One of the boys was having an anxiety attack and was screeching, hit Snickers in the face, and Snickers just sat there.. Back foot relaxed, ears forward, and slowly falling asleep.

***(If you feel like ranting about how that’s unsafe and mean to my horse and blah blah blah, meet my horse, and have a year of volunteer experience at a riding centre that specializes in therapeutic riding for mentally and physically disabled children and adults)***

I wanted to ride him today because of well he was behaving, and while it was challenging, it was worth it. He’s so cute. My trainer’s big ole’ dog was romping around and Snickers looked straight at her, bent his front legs down, and did his little “Look mom, I was bred and trained to be a cutting horse. Am I doing it right?!”

No, honey, you’re not. You’re too small and too fast to give me heart attacks every time you want to change directions when I don’t ask. You’re an English horse, not a western horse. I can’t hold on very much.
